If order is your main concern, another option is to use the "Publish"
option. You'll have to add each FGS in the order in which you want it
1. Click the Publish button (or Reports > Publisher)
2. Select "New" and name it.
3. Click "Add a chapter" > Family Group sheet
4. Select a person for whom you want a FGS
5. Select the family (as a child, as a parent w/Spouse 1, as a parent
w/Spouse 2, etc.)
6. Select the FGS print options (just like for a regular FGS)
7. Repeat steps 3 thru 6 for each FGS.
After selecting all the families, use the "Up" and "Down" options to
arrange them in whatever order you want them to print.
Page numbers are controlled through the "Page Layout" option:
On the Page tab, you can chose the starting page number (default is 1)
On the Header/Footer tab, you can even delete the page footer if you so choose.
